In case you missed the most recent improvement within the Vanderpump Guidelines feud, Raquel took to Instagram over the weekend to share some photos of her and Tom collectively exterior of his restaurant Schwartz and Sandy’s. Ch-ch-check it out (beneath):
Associated: Katie Calls Scheana Shay An ‘Evil Little Troll’ For Pushing Raquel/Tom Fling!
The submit shortly grabbed the eye of Katie, who reacted within the feedback part by writing:
“You actually thought you probably did one thing right here however these feedback ATE LOLOL”
The 36-year-old added:
“No one unhappy. … The quantity of occasions the image landed in my inbox, I couldn’t go away it alone. Desperado.”
In fact, Perezcious readers know there have been lots of points between Katie and Raquel ever since she and Tom attached final yr. Thoughts you, their fling got here after the previous couple agreed to not date inside their pal group to keep away from any messy conditions. Clearly, Tom didn’t comply with the plan! So it’s no surprise the You’re Gonna Love Me podcast host couldn’t resist reacting to Tom and Raquel seemingly trying so as to add gas to their beef.
However for his half, the TomTom co-founder swears he was not intentionally making an attempt to trigger any extra drama or “harm” Katie with the snapshot! He informed Us Weekly on Wednesday:
“It was not meant to be a jab. It was not deliberate. It was not premeditated. I by no means wish to do something to harm Katie. I nonetheless love her and it wasn’t malicious. It’s not like we coordinated right here. Like, ‘Yeah let’s stir the pot a bit bit.’ I feel we we have been having a very good night time and we have been celebrating a milestone. [Raquel] wished to point out some love.”
Critically, Schwartz??? Even when the 40-year-old wasn’t making an attempt to get again at Katie, he needed to have identified what folks would assume when the pic dropped – and that they inevitably would ship it to his ex-wife. Nonetheless, Tom went on to notice that he wasn’t “naive” concerning the timing of the submit, provided that we’re lastly seeing the entire hookup scandal play out on season 10 of VPR:
“I perceive that with the storyline this season — inherently it might be interpreted as a bit impolite. However I by no means do something maliciously. Possibly on occasion I could be careless or barely thoughtless.”
Ya, assume?! He continued:
“However in regard to Katie, I by no means wish to harm her. It was by no means my intention. Given all the things that we’ve been by means of, I really feel like we’re on fairly good phrases.”
Umm… “On fairly good phrases???” We might beg to vary, given the feedback she’s been making about him these days!
As for the general public response to the entire scenario? Tom talked about he’s been “cautious” about seeing what anybody else has mentioned – whether or not or not it’s about his portrayal on VPR or within the feedback part of a submit:
“I’m not too self-righteous to understand some good tea. I like some gossip. But in addition, I’m simply very cautious of thriving off of feedback or diving into the feedback part. I noticed a couple of feedback [about VPR episodes] and it hurts once you see one thing that was so particular to you — which was my marriage and my relationship to Katie. It wasn’t good, nevertheless it was a wealthy and complex relationship. To see it simply be, like, diminished or belittled into, like, 240 characters — generally it does harm a bit bit.”
That is so, so messy, y’all! What are your ideas on the scenario, Perezcious readers? Are you shopping for what Tom needed to say? Tell us within the feedback beneath!
